New goodies

My Papertrey Ink order came yesterday and I found a few minutes to play today! It was hard to decide which set to play with first but I finally decided on the Take Note stamp set. I made a cute little notebook inspired by the notebook queen Michelle Wooderson. You can find her blog prepared for lots of loveliness! I used paper from PTI's Pink Patterns line, PTI Sweet Blush ribbon and cardstock, a notepad from PTI, a Fiskars border punch, black cardstock and some buttons from my stash (I did not have matching PTI Spring Moss buttons, gasp!). Thanks for looking!

Birthday card

Tomorrow is my Mother's birthday. She needed a card and I needed an excuse to play with some is the result.

I used my new stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps for the plaid background. The stamp set is called Off Beat Backgrounds and it is so much fun! I then pulled out my Vintage Picnic set from Papertrey Ink and my Prismacolor pencils (which I have not touched in YEARS!) and used them for the center image. I have been meaning to try my hand at coloring with my pencils for a while now. I do NOT want to try Copics as I know I will want to start collecting them too......and I do not need another obsession! After using the blender pencil I was pretty happy with my results.


Ink: Black, Orange Zest and Enchanted Evening (PTI)
Ribbon: Enchanted Evening (PTI)
Stamps: Vintage Picnic and Sign Language (PTI), Off Beat Backgrounds (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Nestabilities Label Four die (Spellbinders)
Prismacolor pencils

Thanks for looking!

It's World Card Making Day!

I just HAD to make sure I posted a couple of cards today since it is WCMD. I have two more Christmas cards to share......both made with stamps from Papertrey Ink. And I am LOVING my Nestabilities as you can tell. I have been using them on almost every card. And for anyone local, I found them for a great price at Pat Catan's.......they run around $15!

This one uses the stamp set Signature Christmas from PTI, a Fiskars border punch, pattern paper from Basic Grey, Labels One Nestabilities from Spellbinders and a felt embellishment from Making Memories ( soooo cute!).

This one uses PTI stamp sets VintageLabels (which coordinates with the Labels One Nestabilities) and Peaceful Poinsettia, Labels One Nestabilities die, and a Fiskars border punch.

Well, that is all from me for today. Have a great weekend everyone!

Quick card

Just another card using the Cricut cartridge A Child's Year. Quick and easy!

The image, number and scallop were all cut with the Cricut. I used a hole punch along the edges of the scallop oval and layered it all on some old Chatterbox paper.
